Vitamin D-3 softgels supply this key vitamin in a highly-absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultra-violet energy of the sun. However, it is not abundant in food. As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply. I have to take two D3 1000IU per day. My doctor prescribed it when I was having so much pain, and said it would be good for me because I also have Osteoporosis. As Vitamin D3… well it says on the bottle Bone & Immune Health and Vitamin D is essential for proper calcium absorption and that’s fine by me. I love the gel kind because hard pills and I don’t get along. They have a tendency to stick in my throat and then I taste them and YUK! We’re talking total gross here! So I will actually go looking in the store for the gel pill. I just cannot handle the white ones especially if they get stuck in my throat. Give me a gel pill here any ol’ day!!!
Older women who take vitamin D3 may live longer is what they say because Vitamin D is needed for healthy bones, and a number of studies have suggested that supplements may lower elderly adults’ risk of falls and fractures — which can prove fatal sometimes. Requirements for pregnant women are the same as for healthy adults. … Vitamin D is found in some foods, but the main sources are fortified milk.
Vitamin D deficiency can occur for a number of reasons:
When you don’t consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. This is likely if you follow a strict vegan diet, because most of the natural sources are animal-based, including fish and fish oils, egg yolks, cheese, fortified milk, and beef liver.
When your sunlight is limited because the body makes vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight, you may be at risk of deficiency if you are homebound, live in northern latitudes, wear long robes or head coverings for religious reasons, or have an occupation that prevents sun exposure.
So my friends you need to take your Vitamin D3 every day or better yet check with your doctor and ask him how your levels are doing and are you doing enough for your body. Stick with Mr. Sun, but not too long. Too much of anything is not good for you… go figure!
